Pretty average medium brown appearance w/ faint head. Aroma is pretty malty. Taste is pretty flat, mediocre.. This one is overrated.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from Stone in Asagaya. Pours a clear amber with a finger of foam that lingers. Big orange and pine nose with caramel dominating. Very faint tropical notes in the background if I try hard to look for them I guess. Clean and crisp on the palate. More malt and caramel, pine. Bitter finish. Simple IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
355ml bottle from the Beer Fairy. Pours an almost perfectly clear medium amber with a loosely packed, off white head and lacing. Aromas of citrus, pine, some tropical fruit and spices with a bread backbone. Palate is medium-full body and medium carbonation. On the palate, it’s rich bread and some caramel, with spicy citrus hop flavours and a clean, assertive bitterness that lasts into the off-dry finish. Incredibly well balanced.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Third of a litre at Craft Beer Kontor. A: Mahogany, clear, large thick head, left lots of lacing around the side of the glass. S: Heavy on the citrus hops, had a New Zeeland and Pacific Northwest like aroma. A burst of strawberry and grapefruit against a strong malt backbone, finished with some rye, not boozy at all. M: Medium to heavy body, not hugely carbonated, smooth. O: Another very good IPA, not much more to say.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Pours a deep amber, thick soapy white head. Fine aroma of fermented bread and citrus. Flavors of a sour dough, citrus, and light fruit medley. Hoppy, but a good bitter, and it softens as you sip. Some earthy aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 355ml. *** Colour: Deep hazy amber. Big, fluffy white head. ***
Nose: Toasted malts, pinewood. Pineapple. Mildly sweetish. ***
Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy body, still a tad watery. Soft carbonation. ***
Taste: Licorice, pine, resin, plenty of herbs, raisins. Initially a bit sweet, but turns bitter and resinous very quickly. Pine and toffee malts in gthe middle, dry and pine-y finish. Long, strong aftertaste of pine, a hint of lemon, and some raisins. ***
Impressions: Atypical IPA with strong malty notes, missing tropical and citrus fruit flavours almost completely, except for some pineapple in the aroma. A multi-layered, heavy, compex brew - but not what you’d expect from an American-made strong IPA.
